In order to ensure safety at our events, we have implemented some basic safety equipment requirements:
SPARRING: Gloves and face/head protection are REQUIRED during our sparring sessions. Head/face protection includes paintball masks, hockey masks, fencing or kendo helmets, or something similar. Accidents happen – frequently – even with our most skilled competitors. This is for your safety to protect your eyes, ears, neck.
TRAINING/DRILLS: The same equipment is RECOMMENDED but not required during instructional training sessions.
